Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We absolutely loved this meal. We absolutely loved this meal. If you’re planning to serve this to a family of four, then I say double up the ingredients. But this was just fine for my family of 3. I used a 2qt casserole dish, used a can of green chilies instead of jalapeños, didn’t use the whole can of black beans, and seasoned my meat with Lawry’s & black pepper along with the cumin and garlic. I used Marie Calendar Honey Butter cornbread mix (but didn’t use all of the batter) which provided a nice contrast to the spicy meat mixture, and I added chives to my cornbread mix. Making this again real soon…

What a great concept -- chili with a baked cornbread topping! :) My husband said this is in the top 5 of recipes I've ever made & we've been married for 6 years. I did make a couple changes which I would recommend! I used chili beans instead of black, fresh garlic (instead of powder) and added 1tsp dried southwest montreal seasoning (in addition to cumin). Side note - if you make as is - use an 8 x 8 with same amount of ingredients and only 1 cup cheese! Its perfect for 4 servings. I

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe and easy to prepare in a hurry. Great recipe and easy to prepare in a hurry. Next time I may make the meat mixture ahead and just reheat it. I knew the cornbread topping would be sticky so I just dropped the batter in small pieces all over the top and it worked fine. I did add 1/2 cup of canned corn because it was **** and needed used. I omitted the Jalapeno because I can not eat them. My husband had two servings which means he liked it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty dish. Very tasty dish. I made mine in a 2 qt casserole dish, so I didn't have the problem of not enough cornbread. That worked well for my family since they preferred more meat to cornbread. I did sprinkle a little taco seasoning into my meat while cooking as others suggested. I also used a small can of green chilies since I didn't have a jalapeno. Delicious!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really enjoyed this recipe. I really enjoyed this recipe. It's easy to make, very tasty, and allows for leftovers (I live alone). I made the enchilada sauce from a packet (substituted tomato sauce for tomato paste and reduced the water to make the sauce), and used 2 Tbsp. of salsa verde instead of the jalapeno. I would use 2 packages of corn muffin mix since it didn't completely cover the meat mixture using just one (in my 13 X 9 pan anyway). I also added 1 Tsp. of chili powder. Yummy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was so yummy! This recipe was so yummy! My young children liked it too, so that is a win! Instead of the enchilada sauce (my kids don't like) I used a can of petite diced tomatoes, instead of the jalapeno I diced half a red bell pepper and threw in a small can of diced green chiles. I also used ground turkey as many others did, as well as fresh garlic. I included with the cumin a teaspoon of chili powder (it didn't seem like chili without it!) and half a teaspoon of salt. Delish! A little hard to spread the cornbread mixture over the entire casserole (the edges were left without, but as it cooked it spread). I didn't have the cheese with a touch of Phili, so I just added a couple tablespoons of cream cheese to two cups of shredded cheddar. So yummy! Oh, and threw on some diced green onions on top. Definitely will make again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got so tired of the same old thing with hamburger. Got so tired of the same old thing with hamburger. This recipe is delicious! Everybody loved it and more than half of the family went back for seconds. There are also so many variations and different items that can be added to make it different every time. So looking forward to trying it out at a pot luck dinner. Thank you so much!!!

This recipe provided a great foundation for what turned out to be a smile winning,head knodding and second serving meal! I made some modifications to the original. I used a jar of salsa instead of enchilada sauce and added a pack of chili seasoning and taco seasoning to the meat. I also added a can of creamstyle corn to the cornbread recipe and but a layer of cheese between the meatsauce and the cornbread layer.
